JOHN F. KENNEDY The new United States Senator tries to help a constituent with his mail delivery issues Typed Letter Signed: "Jack" as U.S. Senator, one page, 7½x10. Washington, District of Columbia, April 15, 1953. On his United States Senate letterhead to Mr. Anthony Galluccio, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Begins: "Dear Tony". In full: "This will acknowledge receipt of Mr. William E. O'Halloran's letter to you of April 2nd regarding mail delivery to 377 Walnut Street, Newtonville 60, Massachusetts. This is just a note to let you know that I am taking this matter up with the Post Office Department and will be in touch with you again. With kindest regards, I am Very sincerely yours". Senator John Fitzgerald Kennedy (1917-1963) used his famous nickname, "Jack", to sign this letter to a longtime friend, Anthony Galluccio, who worked as a full-time staff member to get Kennedy elected to the U.S. Senate in 1952. Once Kennedy was in the Senate, Galluccio, an attorney, contacted him on behalf of people seeking recommendations for employment, or in the case of this letter, needing help to solve a problem with the U.S. Postal Service. During his first term as U.S. Senator, Kennedy co-wrote the Pulitzer Prize-winning Profiles in Courage while recovering from back surgery. The book discusses eight times in U.S. history where a U.S. Senator stood up for what he thought was right, no matter what his party or the public had to say. Kennedy went on to become the nation's 35th President. Sadly, his tenure in the Oval Office was cut short by the infamous assassination in Dallas Texas, on November 22, 1963, subject to numerous conspiracy theories in the decades since. Lightly creased with folds, not at signature. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 33¼x21¼.
